Time to Celebrate

Monday, December 27th, 2021

Welcome back to real life after a holiday weekend! Today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt on the Facebook Scrap ‘n Stamp challenge page is CELEBRATE! It would be easy to use this prompt for a Christmas card, but I’m ready to ease back into regular cardmaking. 😉  Here’s what I came up with:

 

 

When a card is this clean and simple, it’s nice to add a bit of a WOW factor, and for me, it was cutting the two My Favorite Things martini glasses out of sparkly blue Memory Box glitter cardstock. It’s one of teammate Jess’s “picks”, and it’s a good one! Gorgeous shimmer, and die cuts beautifully. I also cut a few extra martini glasses out of some scraps of blue cardstock – the narrow stems of the glasses are hard to pop up with foam tape, I find.  For a little background interest, I added a light grey stencil of brickwork… perhaps this celebration is taking place in a trendy bar? 😀  The sentiments come from two different MFT stamp sets, Balloon Bundle and A Toast to You. To finish, I layered everything on a grey card base to pick up on the stencilling.

I’m Dreaming of a White…

… martini? 😀  Today’s Random Act of Cardness prompt on the Scrap ‘n Stamp challenge page is WHITE! Here’s my take on a white card:

 

 

I don’t know about you, but some days when the holiday crunch is getting to me, this might just about sum up how I feel. 😀  As a festive card, I wanted lots of sparkle, so I started off with a Picket Fence martini stencil and some moonstone Nuvo glimmer paste. While that dried, I cut the My Favorite Things martini glass from some white glitter cardstock as well as two more from regular cardstock so I could layer them together. I also added a couple of layers to the MFT sassy sentiment, which I embossed with some sparkle embossing powder. I think we all know how tricky shine is to photograph, but this close-up at least gives a hint:

 

 

If you’re still working on holiday cards, I hope you’ll consider making a white card of your own, and adding it to the challenge page for a chance to win some Scrap ‘n Stamp spending money! Thanks for checking in today.

Let It Snow?

Friday, November 19th, 2021

And just like that, it’s Friday again! Hope everyone is doing well, especially if you’ve been affected by the horrible weather events in BC.

I don’t know about you, but I’m just as happy when snow stays away for as long as possible. 😉  But that doesn’t mean I can’t put a little of the white stuff on a card for today’s Random Acts of Cardness challenge prompt, SNOW!

 

 

It’s a bonus when I can manage to make a cute card with just a little bit of sass! That penguin seems made for pitching snowballs, and I suppose it’s one way to get his little reindeer to pull the sled. The background is made with mermaid lagoon distress oxide ink blended on white cardstock, and then splattered with water. A few of my splats are larger than ideal, but oh well. 😀  The snow is made using a fun new product, snowfall distress grit-paste! It’s added to a separate piece of watercolour paper so it wouldn’t pick up any of the oxide colour. My critters, sled and snowballs are all from Lawn Fawn’s Toboggan Together, and the sentiment from Tiny Tag Sayings. The panel and sentiment dies are older My Favorite Things dies from my stash.

 

 

I hope my little snowy scene has inspired you to play along on the Scrap ‘n Stamp Random Acts of Cardness Facebook group! And stay tuned this weekend for the winner announcement for the Let It Snow Inspiration Hop!
